Let's see, first, there is WP:COI, conflict of interest, since this person is promoting his own magazine or one he works for, editing a page about his magazine or company is strongly discouraged. Of course that won't deter him, I suppose "IP range of parent organization" is the IP address or the username he chose to edit with. IP bans by local admins usually don't last longer than 24 hours, unless he's lucky enough to be caught in range block from a steward, which is unlikely. The simplest solution is creating an account, and then editing with it, not using IP address to edit.
The IYogi page is here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IYogi , I'm not sure what he means by reviving it, he can edit it as much as he wants. This sounds like a common marketing query, tell him to read the help section or ask in the help channel on IRC. #wikipedia-en-help Regards Theo On Mon, Feb 6, 2012 at 3:06 PM, Noopur <noopur.ra...@gmail.com> wrote: > Dear all, > Can someone help me out with this?
